The Lansing Police Honor Guard is comprised of volunteer officers who have committed themselves to the time and training required for the specialized duties. They are highly respected for their attention to detail and precision in representing the Department. The group has grown from an informal band of officers to a well-equipped and trained Honor Guard Unit that is frequently called upon to represent the Lansing Police Department.
The Honor Guard regularly participates in many community events such as the H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program, Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, the Memorial services which pays tribute to the 911 tragedy at Wentworth Park. The Honor Guard also participates in the MI COPS Law Enforcement Memorial at the State Capitol in May.
The most important function that the Honor Guard performs is the attendance and paying respect to the families and communities of officers who lose there lives in the line-of-duty, and paying tribute to the deaths of retired Lansing Police Officers and their families.
